Julie Walters - Julie Walters Lands Bifa Honour

Julie Walters has become the latest Harry Potter star to land the top honour at the upcoming British Independent Film Awards (Bifa).

The veteran actress will be presented with the Richard Harris Award to mark her contribution to the U.K. film industry during the ceremony in London on Sunday (08Dec13).

The prize, which was created in 2002 in honour of Walters' late Harry Potter co-star, was last year (12) given to Michael Gambon, the actor who replaced Harris in the wizard franchise.

Other stars to have previously received the award include a slew of other Potter alumni, including David Thewlis, Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes.
